DHM1630. Thrown Tracks by David Rowlands.
Between 27th March and 4th April 2003, C Squadron The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards was attached to 40 Commando Royal Marines on the Al Faw peninsula, Iraq. Corporal Justin Simons was the squadrons recovery mechanic and Corporal James Garrett was the commander of the squadrons Challenger Armoured Repair and Recovery Vehicle - CRARRV. On 30th March, 2nd Troop C Squadron was supporting a Royal Marines clearance operation near Abu Al Khasib - Operation JAMES. A Challenger 2 tank became decisively engaged by the enemy, both its tracks were thrown and it was disabled beside the causeway. Corporal Garrett was tasked to recover it. As darkness fell and under attacks from rocket propelled grenades, small arms and mortar fire, Corporal Simons took charge of the recovery operation. He and Corporal John Morgan dismounted, while Corporal Garrett provided close protection by operating the machine-gun. The tank was successfully winched onto the road, but then became stranded in an even more difficult position. For six hours, in complete darkness, Corporals Simons and Morgan struggled to break both tracks conventionally before finally resorting to arc-welding equipment. Eventually Corporal Simons tried the unorthodox by organizing a CRARRV on CRARRV recovery, which succeeded in dragging the tank to safety, nine hours after it was disabled. Corporal Garrett and Corporal Simons were both Mentioned in Despatches for their leadership, calmness and disregard for their own safety.

DHM258. Charge of the Union Brigade by Mark Churms.
At about 2.00pm the Union Brigade crashes through the ranks on Napoleons Ist Infantry Corps. The 2nd Royal North British Dragoons (later known as The Scots Greys) on the far left of the line, plow through Marcognets division, only Duruttes division will escape intact. With Brigade General Ponsortby at their head, elements of the now disordered Cavalry charge on to the French artillery. Even though, at close quarters, the Gunners and attached Infantry are no match for the wild Scots, they desperately try to save their 12 pounder field pieces. However the British heavy Cavalry is now out of control and Napoleons retribution will be swift. From the undulating ground before Paillotte comes the thunder of hooves and the deadly lances of 4th Regiment and the 3th Chasseurs a Cheval. In the confusion many of the British soldiers are completely unaware of the onslaught as the fresh French Cavalry sweeps through their flank. Ponsonbys mount leaps through the mud as the exhausted Brigade is herded together for the final kill. Even against all odds the brave men continue to fight. The Brigade General himself will shortly be sabred by Sergeant Urban as he attempts to capture the eagle of the 4th Lancers.
